Italians describe mostaccioli as “little mustaches.” They are diagonally cut tubular shapes similar to penne, but larger. Mostaccioli Rigati has a ridged surface. Versatile in size and shape, Mostaccioli Rigati is good in entrées, side dishes, baked dishes and cold salads. Almost any favorite pasta sauce is complementary. Thinner sauces work better with Mostaccioli Rigati since the ridges “hold” the sauce. Thicker sauces will cling to smooth mostaccioli.
